Applications open for Responsive Neighbourhood Small Grants

Responsive Neighbourhood Small Grants

Public health orders to physically distance from others has had the unintended impact of creating more social isolation. But so many of you are stepping up to counteract this. Thousands are already self-organizing online to support each other out of their own pockets. That’s why the Victoria Foundation has partnered with the Vancouver Foundation and community foundations across Vancouver Island to bring the Responsive Neighbourhood Small Grants program to our communities. Responsive NSG will fund small-scale projects that involve reducing social isolation.

What is a Responsive NSG Grant?

The Responsive NSG grant stream provides grants of up to $500 for projects that connect people socially or involve sharing skills or talents with each other. Projects must comply with public health orders for physical distancing.

This is available to all BC residents. The Responsive NSG grant stream is now open as of April 15. The end date will be determined based on public health orders.
